GOP wants to stick with what is destroying us and our world

GOP wants to stick with what is destroying us and our world
Obama wants to evolve toward an uncertain future
This is the actuality
And if it remains so the election will be close
and we will risk a GOP victory

We could content ourselves with working 
with the reality noted above
Hammer Mitt with multiple reasons
Hope that Barack can prevail by his good intentions


Let me state the above more strongly
The choice is KochWorld versus creating a new sustainable society
KochWorld is where we all live
It is sprawl
It is cars
It is oil
It is pollution
It is tar sands
It is culture as we know it

President Obama must
say sustainable
He must articulate that his policy is
Beyond sprawl
and beyond 
everything else
in KochWorld 

If we end up regurgitating because
Romney won
we have one consolation
History is on our side
I hope the President gambles 
on the prescience of the American people

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
